Stanford head coach David Shaw is going to be a hot commodity after every NFL season for teams looking to find a new head coach.

Shaw says they can keep looking.

The 41-year old Shaw was an offensive assistant over nine years with the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens.

“I had a 9-year run in the NFL it was phenomenal,” said Shaw on the Jim Rome Show. “One of the best things about the NFL is that you’re coaching the best in the world.”

Shaw is 26–4 in three seasons at Stanford after taking over for Jim Harbaugh and says that he has no plans of leaving Stanford anytime soon.

“I absolutely love it here,” said Shaw. “My family loves it here. My wife is an East Coast woman who’s been transplanted here to Palo Alto, California and never wants to leave. So I plan on being here for a very long time.”

Translation: I have other offers but they aren't high enough yet.

Stop bugging this guy.  He's said time and time again that he has no interest in coaching in the NFL. Why should he?  He's winning at Stanford. He's in a great environment, in a great area and at one of the academically elite university's in the world. 

Shaw's only worry is holding onto the great coaching staff he has in place or being able to identify equally good coaches once his eventually leaves. 

As a Trojan, I don't root for Stanford, but I respect their program and what they've become.
